Gourmia is debuting its Cool-Cooker, an appliance that is said by the company to be the first multi-cooker with a refrigeration unit that keeps food cold prior to cooking.
The 11-in-1 Sous Vide & Multi-Cooker with Refrigeration Unit can be controlled by the Gourmia mobile app, is compatible with Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa, and features artificial intelligence (AI) that allows the unit to learn user cooking preferences among other items.
“Featuring first-of-its-kind built-in refrigeration, this new, smartly advanced multi-cooker is the perfect solution for the busy cook with little time for meal preparation,” said Heshy Biegeleisen, Gourmia’s founder. “This state-of-the-art device allows them to not only create delicious meals at the push of a button but to keep all of the ingredients fresh and cool, even when prepared hours ahead of time.”
The Cool-Cooker allows the home cook to bake, make rice, roast, prepare yogurt, make porridge, slow cook with both low and high temperatures, keep food warm, sauté, steam, and even do sous vide. For foods like yogurt, that requires the final product to be kept cold until it is consumed, the Cool-Cooker also can keep it cool until the end-user is ready to serve it. A special manual mode allows for custom settings.
